PRINCE Harry paid his own personal tribute to murdered aid worker Alan Henning today when he stopped to view floral tributes to him in his home town.
The fourth in line to the throne laid a bunch of flowers and paid his respects at the makeshift shrine to Mr Henning at Eccles Cross in Eccles, Greater Manchester.
Harry, 30, was travelling between an official engagement at Eccles Rugby club and a further visit to a fire station in Salford and stopped off en route.
It was a private, informal tribute and there was no card or message with his floral tribute.
Mr Henning, 47, a Manchester taxi driver, was beheaded in Syria by Islamic State fundamentalist fighters on October 3 after being captured during ISIS’s occupation of the Syrian city of Al-Dana in December 2013.
The aid worker, who worked as a taxi driver in Eccles - where he was known by the nickname Gadget and hailed a hero - was in the city providing humanitarian relief.
